FEBRUARY 2016 CLUB SHIPMENT (Ships February 22, 2016)

Amapola Creek Zinfandel emerges from the Monte Rosso Vineyard. Included in this Richards Reserve Club shipment is an impressive selection of two Monte Rosso Zinfandel vintages. Monte Rosso Vineyards has been a fabulous source for many different varietals, but certainly among the best has always been the Zinfandel farmed at this high-elevation Sonoma site.

2012 Zinfandel, Sonoma Valley, Monte Rosso Vineyard - The unfined, unfiltered 2012 Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard Vinas Antiguas (815 cases produced) is a meaty, dark plum-colored wine exhibiting aromas of grilled steak and herbs. Peppery, spicy, full-bodied and rich with 15.5% natural alcohol, it cuts a broad, expansive swath across the palate. Drink this gorgeous Zinfandel over the next 5-6 years. 93 Points, The Wine Advocate, December 2014, Retail Price $45 / RRC Club Price $38.25

2005 Zinfandel, Sonoma Valley, Monte Rosso Vineyard - The 2005 Zinfandel Monte Rosso reveals loads of Provençal garrigue/herbal notes intermixed with some earth, pepper, roasted meats and terrific fruit intensity, especially black cherry, strawberry jam and blackcurrants. This is a big, spicy, meaty Zinfandel to drink over the next decade. 92 Points, The Wine Advocate, August 2015, Retail Price $45 / RRC Club Price $38.25
